“Liverpool Drop to Ninth in Table as Trent’s Message Cries ‘Not Enough'”

Introduction: Liverpool’s season has been a far cry from what was expected before the start of the campaign, and the 3-0 defeat to Brighton was a new low. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson were two of the few Reds to speak out after the game, with the former posting on social media that “it’s not enough. We have to play better and we will.” Now, with Tuesday’s FA Cup third-round replay against Wolverhampton and Saturday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea, Liverpool have the chance to turn their fortunes around and “fix the situation”. It’s up to the players to prove that their words mean something and to show that they can still compete at the highest level.

Silence can be deafening at such times for Liverpool, but Trent Alexander-Arnold was one of the few Reds to speak out after the humbling defeat at Brighton.

Jurgen Klopp may not have expected to see Liverpool’s ‘worst game’ before the trip to the AMEX, but fans were not surprised to have seen the signs long ago.

Without the intensity, desire and mentality that has defined Klopp’s side for many years, they are easy to dismiss and offer little resistance to the opposition when the nuts are tightened.

The 3-0 defeat by Brighton was a new low, and the spotlight on the club is brighter than ever, just not for the reasons anyone suspected at the start of the season.

Right now, we all want actions to speak louder than words, but Alexander-Arnold didn’t miss a beat Saturday game without commentary.

“It’s not enough. We have to play better and we will,” the right-back wrote on social media after the defeat.

Some will target Alexander-Arnold for a statement on social media, but in this case players will be damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

It’s important to note that form, or lack thereof, is rightly acknowledged – after all, acceptance is the first step – and Andy Robertson has joined his fellow defender with a post of his own.

“It’s not good enough. We need to fix that,” Robertson wrote.

The first opportunity to “fix the situation” will be included Tuesday in the FA Cup third-round replay against Wolverhampton and then again when Chelsea visit Anfield on Saturday in the battle for 9th and 10th places in the Premier League.

Chelsea have lost three in a row in all competitions and have won just once in their last eight. of Liverpool the last win was against Leicester on 30 December.
